    Interview Details

    The phone screen by the recruiter in Milwaukee was fantastic. She was friendly and thorough. The actual, on-site interview with the then-acting plant manager, and the hiring manager were something else. They did all the talking and asked me absolutely no questions. The hiring manager had barely read my resume.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    As I've walked into the building, the interior is very old and musty. The chairs were old and dirty. It seems like they didn't put much effort into up- keeping the production plant. HR was late and the position is not even the same as described on the advertisement. It was a waste of my time.

    Interview Questions
    • Just the usual "poem" resume reading. . .going down the list.   Answer Question

    Content Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Johnson Controls.

    Interview Details

    5 hours, 5 people. Some engaged, some distracted and not overly welcoming. 1 person per hour in sequential hours. One interview rather than 2 before hire. Do your homework on product lines. In depth websites provide a great deal of info prior to the interview about corporate responsibility and product lines. Seem to be at odds in the company between marketing and sales on new product developments. Many layers of approvals for initiatives - extreme corporate ladder but upward mobility and leadership pathway programs available. Commitment to sustainability came through. Not overly difficult questions but strongly suggest preparation and research prior to interviewing. Very sharp team. I just wish that there was a planned break or offer of beverage to keep fresh during 5 hours of questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Are you sure this would be challenging enough for you - how would you remain fresh with one program focus responsibility?   Answer Question
